I have been training with Sue at the Infinity Training Academy over the last few months as a complete newbie to massage, and it has been one of the best experiences I have had, above and beyond what I had expected.

From the warm welcome and calming feeling of the academy, to Sue’s knowledge and attitude to learning, I could not be happier with the level of massage training I am receiving, and walk out every week full of optimism and looking forward to practicing my newly found skills. It has been a complete joy to be part of an such amazing learning experience at Infinity.
